    I am thinking of buying a 12V/240V coolbox as the fridge is not really big enough when on long stays. I have read they can be a bit noisey not a problem during the day, but in a small van it would get on me nerves in the night.

    Any comments and recomendations will be appreciated:thumb:

    I got one from aldi's for about £40, when parked up it fits under the rear wheel arch, Only when its very quiet can you hear the fan spinning, and only when your sitting next to it.
    I would imagine you'd probably hear it more inside the van at night if you had it indoors. (and then get up and throw it out the door:Rofl1:)

    Hi Dane

    Thinking about doing a bit of heavy drinking are you. If you get one we can use it as a beer store at Deal.

    In fact we have a little one, we might bring along and leave it plugged in the pub tent, what do you think.

    You do have good ideas occasionally

    We have used one for over 10 years. It was not very noisy to start with but as it got older the fan rattles more. A couple of years ago we bought a 3 way Waeco cool box. It has the benifit of being totaly silent whatever the power source and it runs of gas when not on hook up. I only paid £85 from Tamworth Camping as it had a couple of dents.

    Heavy drinking ME!!!! No:Rofl1:

    Just need something to keep the shampoo and caviar cool:Rofl1:

    Are you expecting hot weather for Deal? If so take your little one along for the pub tent, now that's gone and done it, everyone knows we have a pub tent and will want to join us:Rofl1:

    I wonder if Sonja can pop over the water and get another one of them kegs we had at Sam's lakes on my birthday? That went down a treat:thumb:
